The Weinstein Company will have a busy November this year. Recently it was announced that the "My Week with Marilyn" will be released wide later in the month to capitalize on Thanksgiving audiences, while festival sensation "The Artist" finally hits the marketplace in limited release around the same time.
"Marilyn" will certainly give the company plenty to work with in the Best Actress arena, as Michelle Williams's performance as Marilyn Monroe has been high on the buzz meter since the film's New York Film Festival debut. But it seems they want a little more muscle in the category, as plans have been announced to re-release "Sarah's Key" on 300 screens tomorrow in advance of its November 22 DVD/Blu-ray release.
The film features a leading performance from Kristin Scott Thomas that has been lurking on the outside of our Contenders page for the field for a few weeks now. There has always been some rumblings within that she could make a play, but this move certainly seems to indicate an aggressive attempt to re-insinuate it in the conversation, no matter how tight the lead actress field may be.
